Here are the two cards I'm looking at to compare and contrast:
What I'm looking at is what is compatible with my current system.
I just purchased a new powersupply recently XFX brand 700w or 750W, I'll have more info on it soon.
I have about a year and a half old system. Right now it supports an HD4890 graphics card. I have 8 gigs of dual channel ddr2 memory, and athalon Operton quad core 3.2 processor. (Full specs will be updated in my signature.)
What I'm looking for is to support flawlessly BF3 and be competetive for a few years after. I'm also considering price. In the hope that the 6990 comes down in price at the end of the summer or early fall, then I would definitely go after it if I can support it.
Thoughts? and thanks!
